Just like ginger, turmeric is famous thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties. This healthy spice has been shown to:
- Help with diabetes management,

On top of these benefits, turmeric can also inhibit the growth of cancerous tumors, according to a study that was published in the British Journal of Cancer.

- Coconut oil, 1 tbs,
- Coconut milk, 2 cups,
